Romantic advent market in the castle courtyard

The Salzburg advent season at the castle has been a popular attraction of the pre-Christmas period for more than twenty years: As in the last few years, in 2018 more than one hundred traditional Moravian stars will immerse the Festungsgasse and the castle courtyard of Hohensalzburg Fortress into a sea of light. The advent market under the linden trees in the castle courtyard is not only the highest in the city, but also one of the most atmospheric. This stalls hold a fine selection of Salzburg delicacies, local handicraft and gift ideas.

In the “Children’s Hödlmoser atelier”, a free and supervised children’s workshop with Christmas music, cookie baking and arts ad crafts provides some entertainment from 2.00 to 5.00 p.m. From 3.30 to 6.30 p.m. the melodies of the trumpeters resound. A special highlight on December 2nd: The Krampus procession of the Stefani Perchten.

Opening hours

11:00 am - 7:00 pm.
